Book Blogger Hop (11)

About the Hop:

Book Blogger Hop is a wonderful opportunity for readers and bloggers to make new friends and to discover blogs of their interest and passion. Through this meme, I've met friendly bloggers who share interesting insights and ideas with me.

This week's question: "When you read a book that you just can't get into, do you stick it out and keep reading or move to your next title?"

For me, I stop. I have to stop because I want to enjoy the story as much as possible. I read something else then when I feel that I can read it again, I try. I'll be honest. There's a book here in my TBR. It's been there for months now. And I really can't get into the story. I've been devouring other books - books that I'm excited about - instead of reading it. But I've devised a reading plan now. I'm going to include it in the plan so I would be able to finish it once and for all.

Welcome to Fragments of Life! Feel free to look around. Comment below so I can visit your blog too!

  3. Hi, I'm just stopping by on the hop! I also stop if I can't get into a book - sometimes I try a couple more times, sometimes I can tell that I'm just not going to like it. But usually I don't force myself to read to the end if I'm not enjoying it!

  4. Stopping by via book hop! Super cute blog. I love your rating system. I'm a new follower :)

  5. Hello! I'm just stopping by from the hop. I totally get what you mean about wanting to enjoy the story. Sometimes forcing yourself to read something that you're just not liking makes reading feel too much like a job.

  6. Hi! I'm a new follower, dropping by from the Hop. Your blog's so cute. :]

    Also, I'm the same way. I prefer to stop reading if it's ruining the experience.

    Have a fantastic weekend!

  9. A plan is always good, lol. Mine usually consists of "Ooh! That looks interesting right now!" and then I read. I tend to not even think about my TBR pile. It's too daunting.

  10. Happy Follow Friday!!! Hope you will stop by my blog too! My publisher and I are looking for a group of bloggers for a huge blog tour next year before the release of book two in my 'A Sense of Truth' series! We will be giving out a few more copies of The Thirteenth Chime (we can only give out so many, being open to e-books gives an upper hand) and are still open to all interviews and guest posts. We want to fill up the Amazon page with reviews and try to reach as many people as we can!!! Hope you might consider being a part of the team! Thank you either way!
